Join us for our Sling/Hammock Classes. We have multiple levels for your comfort. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
What is sling? Literally, it’s a set of silks rigged upside-down. In practice, it’s a little bit like every apparatus while still being completely unique! If you’ve ever tried lyra, trapeze, loops, or silks before, you may recognize some moves or sequences. If you’re brand new to aerial, never fear: you’re in for a fun journey. The one thing sling is definitely NOT is aerial yoga: you will be moving and sweating in this class! We’ll talk about spinning, inverting, sequencing, and finding cool moves all within the loop of the sling.
We recommend students wear or bring clothing covering their midriff, armpits, and backs of knees. Sling will feel a little squeezy at first, but the more time you spend on the apparatus, the more comfortable you’ll feel!
Prerequisites: none! Just come with an open mind and a willingness to try something new.
So, you’re getting pretty comfortable on sling and want to take your journey in the Slingdom to the next step. In Sling Layering, we’re gonna get weird! We’ll build on the skills covered in Sling Foundations and dive deeper into wrap theory, improvisation, momentum, and pathway exploration. We’ll start stacking drops and learning skills from standing in the sling, as well as putting together some longer and more intricate sequences.

So, you want to dive even deeper into some theory and concepts on sling? Slingology is the place for you! This class will consist of four-week deep dives into specific wraps and skills on Sling, with a new focus every month. We’ll talk about wrap theory, anatomy, and teh physics behind each of fthese concepts. This class will be collaborative with lots of discussion and new discoveries along the way!

Comfort with Sling Layering-level material, endurance to sequence for at least 90 seconds, ability to pull over into a sling rigged above head height.
